Hello! My pronter has stopped working. I am getting an error code as listed above, with the very common, LAN not connected, etc. even though it is. I have a Pixma MX 722 and am running Windows 7. And I live in Canada, if that matters.
Thanks for the help!

The 5,157,69 error is usually an indication that security software such as a firewall or anti virus is blocking the scanning function from operating. Please temporarily disable these programs and attempt to scan again.

I am getting this error code as well. I was able to scan about 2 weeks ago via my pixma mg 5420 and my pixma tr8520 from my laptop, running Windows 10, my other laptop, running Windows 7, or my desktop running Windows 10. But it stopped working. I tried re-installing, but that didn't work. I got so frustrated I removed the device from the laptops and tried from the beginning. Nada. The only method that "works" is scanning using the control panel on the desktop, but the scan isn't as good as via the Canon software for some reason. The printers were working, that is, until I removed them from the laptops. So I need help with the error and how to install the printers again.

Hi - I have a similar problem.
I have a Canon MG3600 scanner printer. I have it connected via a USB to a laptop running windows 10 (as my wiFi connection has proved a little problematic). The printer function is working fine but when trying to scan I get this error code (so there is obviously some communication between the two devices.
Any suggestions as to how to remediate this?
